1 Rise, follow Me! our Master saith,
All ye who make my yoke your choice.
Deny yourselves, be true to death,
And follow where'e'r ye hear my voice;
Forsake the world, nor count it loss,
O tread in my steps and bear the cross.
2 For he who seeks to save his life
Shall find his care without me vain;
Who seems to lose it in the strife
Shall find it in his God again;
Who follows not my cross through all,
He can not be worthy of my call.
3 O help us follow Thee, dear Lord,
As Thy true servants did of old,
Forsaking all things at Thy Word,
In suff'ring calm, in danger bold;
'Tis only he who wins the fight
May e'er hope to wear the crown of light.
